National NAYGN Winner

Congratulations to North Coventry Elementary student, Brooke Banninger, who won the 16th annual NAYGN (North American Young Generation in Nuclear) drawing contest. Her drawing is pictured above and on the NAYGN website.

On May 14, 2015, representatives from NAYGN visited Mr. Zalesky's classroom to present the award to Brooke, reporting that her drawing was a landslide winner.

According to their website, "NAYGN provides opportunities for a young generation of nuclear enthusiasts to develop leadership and professional skills, create life-long connections, engage and inform the public, and inspire today’s nuclear technology professionals to meet the challenges of the 21st century."

NAYGN had visited North Coventry classrooms earlier in the school year to talk about nuclear energy and invite students to draw a poster. Thousands of drawings were submitted nationwide.
